  • The "non-latex" neck gasket performs 90% as well as a dry top and is MUCH easier to take on and off. No worries about blowing the neck gasket either!
  • The top fits well, and ergonomic cut ensures wide range of movement and a feeling that you aren’t even wearing a jacket.
  • IR's color selection is also cool. Besides the typical dry top colors they have Urban camo.
  • Great option for people with latex sensitivities or just looking for some more comfortable than latex.
  • Lightweight material is tough enough for what you throw at it and heavy enough for the coldest weather.
  • Available in both Mens’s and Womens’s
  • IR was the 1st company to make a vulcanized neck.
